Laser cladding, also known as laser deposition, is a process used for applying one material to the surface of another.
Cladding is achieved by feeding a stream of a suitable powder into a focused laser beam as it is scanned across a metal surface, leaving behind a deposited coating.
Laser cladding provides:
- precise placement of the cladding material.
- a wide choice of different materials that can be deposited
- deposits that are fully fused to the metal surface.
- a narrow heat affected zone (HAZ).
- limited distortion of the substrate.
- easy automation and integration into CAD/CAM and CNC production.
- Oil and Gas Industry Components
- Water Walls and Tanks
- Hard Facing of Valve Seats
- Bearing Shafts
- Bearing Seats, Cylinder Liners and Pins
- Hydraulic Shafts
- Mining Equipment
- Forestry and Agricultural Equipment
